Camp Beverly Hills Clothing



What girl didn't own a Camp Beverly Hills
shirt back in the 1980s? Me :(

As a young girl growing up in the 1980s, you had to own something from Camp Beverly Hills. Unfortunately, as you know, I was a bit of a chubster and their shirts were too small for me. However, I did own Camp Beverly Hills slouchy socks

Back in the 80s, Camp Beverly Hills was everywhere. Even teen stars like Drew Barrymore wore the brand! The cool California brand had been around since 1977, but became all the rage in the mid 1980s. Right now, there's an original Camp Beverly Hills t-shirt on eBay going for $107. Wow!

Camp Beverly Hills recently relaunched and came back from retirement. The stylish, fresh, young brand is satisfying the nostalgia crazed kids of today, for sure. Shirts, hoodies and more can be purchased from campbeverlyhills.com or in upscale department stores. 

Honestly, if I was a skinny girl, I just might order one of those cute t-shirts. Camp Beverly Hills designers, if you happen to stumble upon this blog post, perhaps you could hook us plus sized gals up one day, ya know? :-)

Remember?

I was obviously too young to jump on this bandwagon, because I don't recall this brand or having any of the clothes.

Which brings me to ask a stupid question: Does this have anything to do with the Shelley Long movie?

No, that movie was out around the time the brand became popular. However, they first opened the store in 1977, long before that film was released. Also the film was titled "Troop Beverly Hills." I'm sure people get confused though.

I would expect a Camp BEVERLY HILLS T-shirt to be way more bedazzled?

I did not have any Camp Beverly Hills stuff, nor Benetton, nor Esprit. Didn't want any part of the whole status clothing thing.

I vaguely remember these. Maybe it was my little sister who had them.

Geez, does everything 80s come back? I had that goofy stuff.

I remember them, but can't remember if any of our girls wore any...

In an odd bit of coincidence, I just found my Camp BeverlyHills 1970 / early 1980s sweat pants tucked away in a box of memory clothes. Have them on right now! Didnt know they had relaunched. I wore in high school / college.
